Fence completed along Blue River Rail Trail

Debbie and Don Roche with D Roche Fencing, Frankfort, complete a fence along the new stretch of Blue River Rail Trail between North Street and a covered bridge just off of Jayhawk Road. This part of the trail is adjacent to the rail yard so the fence was put up for safety under an agreement between the trail group, Marshall County Connection, and the Union Pacific Railroad. The Roches, hired by the trail group, built it recently over three weeks, erecting 3,000 feet of chain link. During that time, they said, they saw plenty of dog walkers, children and adults on bicycles and an occasional jogger.
